PARIS & BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- February 22, 2013

Orange Business Services launches access from a tablet or mobile device to its
cloud-based Open Videopresence with the Orange Video Meeting mobile
application.

Available for both Android and Apple devices, the Orange Video Meeting app,
powered by Scopia Mobile technology from Radvision, an Avaya Company, enables
attendees to actively participate in videoconferencing sessions initiated
through Orange Business Services’ Open Videopresence, which relies on Scopia
Infrastructure. Available in 107 countries, Open Videopresence already allows
meetings to combine equipment from the market’s major vendors, including
various types of videoconference rooms, desktops and possibly telepresence
rooms, on any network. PC and Mac access use the Scopia Desktop light and
full-featured conferencing client from Radvision.

Orange Video Meeting is available for free downloading to a mobile device or
tablet from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading the
app, participants – whether they are employees, customers or partners – can
easily join a videoconferencing session by clicking an e-mail link or through
a mobile device calendar invitation. The smart URL will detect the device the
participant is using and open the appropriate application to join the
conference.

“Enabling video access whatever the device and the location is key to
developing video usage,” said Eric Monchy, vice president of
Videoconferencing, Orange Business Services. “Making access equally easy for
employees, customers and partners, regardless of device or location, makes
videoconferencing a go-to collaboration tool and not one that is reserved for
special meetings. Orange Video Meeting, powered by Scopia Mobile from
Radvision, enables one-touch remote access to videoconferencing in today's
environment of ‘bring your own device’ and mobile workforces.”

Using Orange Video Meeting enables users to fully participate through their
personal or professional mobile device or tablet as they would at their
desktops. Scopia Mobile is the industry's first standards-based mobile video
application to enable HD videoconferencing. With Scopia Mobile technology
embedded in Orange Video Meeting, participants can fully collaborate with
audio, HD video and data sharing. If they are moderators, they can directly
control and manage conferences from their mobile devices, just like if they
were in a conference room or at their desktop.

“Cloud-based video services offer tremendous value to businesses of any size,
and Orange Business Services is taking a leading role in offering robust
hosted service to its customers around the globe,” said Boaz Raviv, vice
president and global head of Avaya video portfolio. “Together with Orange, we
are offering customers a best-in-class, standards-based video collaboration
experience that is accessible to users regardless of where they are or what
device they are using. Orange is setting the bar for what customers can expect
from their carriers' hosted video offerings available on any device in this
era of BYOD. This is a great example of how our relationship with Orange
extends the Avaya Collaborative Cloud, Avaya’s strategic framework for
private, public and hybrid clouds.”
